Comments on the Film

“Ed Moschitz’s film is a deep insight into the lives of Moldovan women who decided to illegally cross the border and make some money to support their families back home.“
Zden─Ľk Blaha, DOKweb

The Film “excellently illustrates the causes and effects of economic migration.“
One World 2012 – Festival Program

"By naming Mama Illegal the winning film of One World Brussels 2012, the jury would like to bring home the complexity of irregular migration to European decision-makers and the wider public, and give a voice to the real family stories hidden by the rhetoric."
One World 2012 – Festival Jury

"I had the privilege of already seeing the film Mama Illegal by Ed Moschitz. I am very impressed, a heart-rending and deeply moving film [...] I wholeheartedly congratulate Ed Moschitz to this movie. He shows the mothers without any filter, the children, the fathers, broken families, because of unemployment in Moldova. I recommend already now to go see Mama Illegal."
Mag. Erich Fenninger, GF Volkshilfe Österreich
